Ooh, ooh, glad to hear you're enjoying Rasputina. I'll have to try to listen to the others.

Showing my iPod some love tonight and started with Foo Fighters and am now on to . . .And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Yes, I still listen to albums at a time. Not much into the random playback.


Charles, I need to make sure I pick up some Rasputina soon.

I usually listen to albums, though occasionally a mix CD in the morning.

Are you able to listen to music while you're writing? I have a lot of trouble doing that anymore. NaNoWriMo is going to cut into my listening time a lot.

If anything, I'll put on classical music, or something without words. I tend to sing along and it's very distracting.

Especially since I have such a beautiful voice. . .

Went to my kids first concert of the year tonight. Both play the viola, my son in junior high and my daughter in the senior strings group in senior high.

The junior high strings were not bad given that the have only just started or have only been playing for a year. The senior strings, WOW! They are quite polished. My kids are lucky to be in such a good music program.

They are indeed lucky. I regret not having started music when I was young as I enjoy listening to it so much now.

I could actually play real music on my toy horns, not just random noises but by the time high school rolled around, my parents could never afford even the program sponsored price for an instrument. My Mom felt bad so she picked up a used guitar from her sister but my youngest brother broke the neck. She sent me to my Grandmothers to learn the piano. Her evil husband (not my Grandfather by blood, thankfully,) got mad at her for something and traded her piano for a Gawd-aweful electric organ that he pretended to play. My Grandmother, being a bit of a purist and very crushed, wouldn't touch it.

In college my roommate started teaching me the electric guitar but his amp died and being poor students with social based priorities, we couldn't afford a new one. I gave up on learning anything for a long time until inheriting my Irish Grandfather's (on my Dad's side) Tin Whistle collection about 12 years ago. It was pretty easy to pick up but my new dog put an end to it. He howled like a wolf every time I played it. OK I can take a hint. We still have 'Cosmo the Dog' but never for a moment would I consider trading less years with my best buddy for a chance to break out my 'Pop's' whistle collection again.

I've always wanted to play the drums. I can't listen to music without tapping out a beat with at least three of my four limbs. Readers here might remember I was dangerously close to buying a set a while back. Still am. I just have to figure out how to spare my wife the torture while I learn. I can't afford thousands for v-drums at this time.

OK, I totally rambled here. Once again, I apologize. All I really wanted to do was agree how lucky your kids truly are to be in a solid music program. I don't have many regrets in life but remaining musically talentless, is one of them.
